Like opening a punnet of the freshest strawberries - green stems with a sweet fruit nose; fresh hedgerows, onto raspberry and cranberry with confected, sour cherry; drinks with real energy and depth. Pretty and complex; the perfect balance of sweet with refreshing acidity. I have major wine crush again...
A wine that matches up to the beautiful artwork on the label from @almahaser 💫
Full on pretty not ugly, learn to see perfection in imperfections...Jolie laide ce n'est pas 💘
Greedy, basic dinner by me, music by LateNightTales from Badbadnotgood yet again 🙏🏼
LOVE the jolie laide situation when you put @still_life_ceramics’s pretty turquoise glaze on brown clay! It gets bubbly and rough and looks like lichen where it’s thin — you can see this toward the bottom. I can’t wait to play around more with this one.

Jolie laide: ugly-beautiful. For those who need a second look to recognize the charm of their oddities. When you embrace self love, confidence, and acceptance of your own skin rather than purely physical appearances. #newtattoo#tattoo#jolielaide#itsfrench
Blind tasting fun ⚡⚡
Thinking back to an awesome blind tasting a few weeks back. So many good wines on show its impossible to pick a favourite. Just some of the rares and special bottles I had time to grab a picture of... 💫
Thanks for hosting Sean and Roosa (and for #bacchusthecat obvs #🐈) 🙏🏼 .
Thanks for the bottles everyone! 🙌🏼💘
"Let the glossy spreads have their heart-stopping, head-turning kind of beauty. Give me the heart-filling beauty instead. Jolie laide (pretty ugly,) that's what I would choose. Flawed, we're truly interesting, truly memorable, and yes, truly beautiful." ~Justina Chen Headley, North of Beautiful

I lived in Denver for nearly seven years. During that time I loved wine as much as I do now, but the wine scene in the #milehighcity was close to non-existent. If you wanted a good bottle, you could occasionally find something unique. Natural? Don’t even ask. @thelittlenell in Aspen and @frascafoodwine in Boulder we’re more than known for their wine programs, but would certainly set you back a pretty 💵. So, unless you had money, you’d had better have been a member in a wine club somewhere.
Living in LA has opened so many doors to try new wines, meet winemakers, and explore new regions. It’s so easy to not only find incredible wine here, but natural or low intervention wine, too.
While on a trip back to #Denver for a wedding, I knew a new natural-leaning wine shop had opened in a neighborhood I often frequented. Enter: @proofwinedenver.
As chance would have it, they were having a tasting (Thanks, Tara for putting up with the fact we were already a glass or two deep by the time we showed up). I snagged a 3-month wine membership for our newlywed friends, tasted a few new wines, and walked out with these four bottles (the fourth we gifted with the wine membership): @jolielaide, @delinquentwineco, @donainegiacometti, @whitcraftwinery
I’m lucky enough to have met Scott of Jolie Laide, so I’ve had this wine and others before (plus a few in my wine fridge). I didn’t end up drinking this one before we left town, so I gifted it to friends to enjoy.
The Delinquent Wine Company is a hard one to find in LA. No one on the west side has it. But I love Montepulciano, so as soon as I spotted this bottle on the shelf, I took it. It. Was. Gooooood. Bravo Australia for this beauty of an Italian varietal. 👏👏👏
The Sempre Cuntentu I’d never had until the tasting at Proof. It’s a delightfully delicious Corsican beauty fermented naturally. I must hunt down more of Giacometti’s wines.
The last I’ve had and have a bottle sleeping in my wine fridge. Even that one was hard to track down in West LA, but Proof has several bottles. And with an adorable dog on the label, I knew our friends @jurassikmarc and @crystalrhino would love it for all reasons.

As much as I think the recent changes to Instagram are a great thing it’s been leaving me a little uninspired to share my work. Anyone else feel the same?

BIZAR: DÍT IS HET SCHOONHEIDSIDEAAL PER WERELDDEEL😘🤭😘🙃🇮🇳 Schoonheid is lastig te definiëren, omdat elke beschrijving enorm subjectief lijkt. Het meest duidelijke, wereldwijd geaccepteerde idee van aantrekkelijkheid is volgens wetenschappers een symmetrisch gezicht. Dit mag dan wel de ‘basis van schoonheid’ worden genoemd, elk deel in de wereld heeft verrassende eigen ideeën over wat schoonheid precies inhoudt. Benieuwd? Wij delen ze met je!
In India is het traditionele schoonheidsideaal vooral gebaseerd op de vrouw met een smalle taille, brede heupen en grote borsten: de typische zandloper. Daarnaast moet ze ook nog grote ogen en lang zwart haar hebben. Whitening producten (producten die de huid bleker maken) zijn nog steeds enorm populair: de Westerse invloeden zijn duidelijk te herkennen in de Indiaase cultuur. 🌐Bron: https://www.styletoday.nl/…/bizar-dit-is-het-schoonheidsid…/#schoonheidssalon #schoonheidsspecialiste#india#schoonheidsideaal #werelddeel#plasticsurgery #bizar#beauty#beautiful#beautysalon#relax#relaxing#ontspannen#tijdvoorjezelf#tijdvoorjezelfnemen #duimelotte#denbosch #shertogenbosch#fransen #elegantie#jolielaide#persoonlijkheid #stijl#whitening #cultuur#
